GWDCS: Episodes 2 and 3

Post by nebcanuck, Stephen’s son.

Some delay in the video production, since our main man Carlo was away last week. Two episode are ready for your viewing pleasure.

First up: Week Two — Bottle Rockets! Caution: Contents may include extreme coolness and loud music.

A tough weak on the ego, as the video makes clear. But a good one for bonding. We had a blast failing at the bottle rockets, and still have tons of cokes left over. After the attempt, Mike bought pizza for the three of us and we went back to the Bridge, where we talked about what it means to be a godly version of a manly man. I brought up Stu Weber’s Four Pillars of a Man’s Heart, an excellent read for the last few generations, since one of the clear struggles is finding the balance between strength and love.

The next week: Potato Launchers!

I was absent for this particular episode (as well as this week’s), but the guys still had a great time, and it looks like their experiment actually succeeded. Hopefully with all the success, the male egos were able to be kept at bay.

I’m looking forward to being back in the mix next week. We’ll see how progress comes on the videos, as Carlo is in Italy for the next few weeks. Enjoy these, and keep on keeping it real!

    This looks like a fun group! And youtubing the activities is a great idea.

    I’m still trying to figure out what the source of propulsion was for the potato launcher.

    I believe it was just spray cans of oil of some kind. At least, that’s what I remember from the planning stage.
